Nematode entomopathogenic used mainly the floriculture industry, $ 1 cut flowers and ornamental plants, $ 1 / strong> for the biological control of larvae of Diptera, $ 1strong> moths and thrips.
These nematodes move through the film of water that surrounds the microparticles of soil and actively seek their victims. After having identified the larvae of insects, the nematodes penetrate them, through the natural openings of the body, and expel a symbiont bacterium; these microorganisms develop and the insect dies, under optimal conditions the insect can perish within 12-24 or at most 72 hours.
